Shimano Crank on Campy drivetrain(3 posts)

Shimano Crank on Campy drivetrainxxx

Has anyone used, or is it possible to use a Shimano 9spd crank on a Campy 9spd drivetrain(Ergo shifters, rear der, f der, chain, cassette)? If you have any experience/advice, it would be appreciated. Thanks!

You will have to face the shame of putting shimano components on a otherwise Campagnolo-equipped bike, however. Obviously, you can't mix and match BB and crank either (even if square-tapered).

A friend built hers up with record 10 spd and used a DA crank because she was unable to find 165mm campy cranks. By all reports it works great.
